Without Land / Senza Terra - Biennale Architettura 2016

In an agreed upon and fixed point, an aerostat with the features of a terraqueous world map is raised. At night, it will be lighted and it will show the writing SENZA TERRA-WITHOUT LAND that keeps rotating around itself, bearing along the sides the logo of the International Art Biennial of Venice. Collateral events. It will be a sign for all who do not have a land of their own, a place where to pause, a place where to meet, to converse and argue, to relate with others. At the bottom of the aerostatic balloon, a plate will be placed with the inscription of all the names of the artists participating in the project SENZA TERRA-WITHOUT LAND. The names will be in alphabetical order but without the mention of functions and activities as sculptor, painter, photographer, musician, literatus or whatever else. There will be only names and last names of human beings who have zeroed their social functions. The site will remain open to the public and anyone will be able to write, take a picture or leave a mark of himself who have been there. At the same time, the visitor/ explorer will be intimately obliged to be aware of the simple and raw reality that he does not possess anything except his own culture. Only in another world (the aerostatic balloon), he will be able to belong to a different spiritual dimension. To achieve this, the visitor/explorer must be aware that he does not belong to any world except to his own inner world. This happens in the sense that absence is stronger than presence (ni présent. ni absént, J. Derrida).
